This webinar features the following modules:
Module #1: Challenges and the Adult Learner
In this module, STARLINK speaks to several experts who uncover the specific challenges adult students face and how they are meeting these challenges. We know that people don't exist in a vacuum; there is a lager socio-cultural context to consider, especially in regards to the adult learner. Discover how empathizing with the student, connecting on a personal level, humor, and peer support can assist with adult learning.
Module #2: Transformative Learning
STARLINK asks our experts about the experience factor, best practices regarding learning vs. life experience, connecting curriculum to the adult learner's life, and finding out what motivates the adult learner. Theories, such as the Transformative Learning Theory, help us to gain perspective.
Module 3: Engagement
Most adult learners are "maxed out", firing on all cylinders after a long day at work, dealing with family issues, and trying to juggle their learning with a very busy life. Explore ways to best engage the adult learner, utilization of small groups/peer teaching, and many more practical tips and best practices to maximize engagement of the adult learner.
